  • bush was the opposite. he was so dumb he had to pay reporters to peddle his ideas.

    talk about media lapdogs. If you cant convince people, just pay "objecive" reporters to give it a favorable spin.

    Wow Sam I guess you have learned nothing. Now, not only do liberals have a mental disease but they are no lunatics.

    The teleprompter president huh? I guess you are going to beat that one down until you reach China. Of course you neglect that most presidents (including your Saint of Conservatism Ronald Reagan) used a teleprompter, but why would you mention that it doesn't help you to continually smear the president at every turn. It's interesting how much you want to protect Mrs Palin from the supposed smears from the press you have no problem with anyone else (as long as they are Democrats or liberals) being smeared.

    You highlight that Pelosi had given up hunting down Osama bin Laden yet you forget to mention that Bush, too, had given up the hunt for Osama bin Laden. It is interesting that Obama did something in just a little over two years that Bush couldn't do in eight years. I'm sure there is a reason you forgot to mention that but that reason completely escapes me.

    It really doesn't surprise me that the boo birds such as yourself who will never fully give Obama any credit for anything immediately came out and suggested that torture led to Osama. The only problem is there is no proof, and you know that Sam, you do, deep in your heart. No one officially involved in the lead up to get Osama has said that torture had anything to do with the success of the mention. We have a few individuals claiming that they did including a Representative who has had huge issues with telling the truth in the past and is known to be biased against all Muslim people, oh and a CIA operative that hasn't been involved in governmental affairs for years claiming that he knows that torture led to the death of Osama.

    But why is this such a shock? For years Republicans have been brow beating the American public that they, and only they, could deal with terrorism, and that Democrats not only were weak on terrorism but sided with the terrorists (which in my opinion is the most disgusting example of partisan politics imaginable, to which you love to play). Yet at the end of the day it wasn't a conservative that gave the order to kill Osama, it wasn't even a Republican.

    It was a Democrat who has been labeled by conservatives and Republicans alike (and you have been right there at the forefront) as a liberal, socialist, commie, weak on foreign policy, and weak on terrorism that gave that order.

    Really sucks doesn't it, Sam. Knowing that someone who you have said not only sided with the terrorists but was in actuality a Muslim gave the order to kill the man responsible for 3,000 American deaths. A man that President Bush said that he rarely thought about.

    Barack Hussein Obama.

  • Michael, you are no different from Sam except you are on the other side of the aisle. Yes, Osama was found during Obamas tenure. Are you going to sit there and seriously tell me that you think this all happened in the past two years; all the planning that went into the execution of this job? And surely you wont try to tell me that Obama got Osama by not using many of the methods and techniques that were espoused by Bush. And you seriously wont tell me that you dont think Bush would have given the same order, given the same set of circumstances.

    Hmmm. No response, Sam, about 47% illiteracy in Detroit. No response about the use of college class time to sign recal petitions, and encouraging students to commit fraud in signing those petitions.

    Detroit and college classrooms are both bastions of liberal, socialist thinking and action. Every thinking person in America knows this. And thus, no need for denial of it.

    But seriously, Sam, all recent presidents have used speech writers and telepromters. More, less, it hardly matters in the big scheme of things.

    A huge matter to me is the administration blocking Boeing from moving to South Carolina. Is this a free country anymore? Will they soon tell me where I can work, as in the Soviet Union? If my business goes broke, can I expect a bailout? Does the government really serve the people anymore, or just the politically well-connected?

  • well boomer, 47% is shameful, but the blame is misplaced. Mississippi, a state that votes largly republican has a terrible literacy score. In fact, it looks like alot of the deep south republican strongholds dont fair too well.

    these states are a bastion of conservative, facist thinking and action. Every thinking person in america knows this. And thus, no need for denial.

    the problem with boeing is they rely of government contracts to make alot of money. If they irritate the government then I guess they can kiss the government contracts goodbye. I dont necessarly think thats right but I recon thats whats going on.

    The government serves the people, the people with money who donate to canidates.

    "well boomer, 47% is shameful, but the blame is misplaced"

    Are you arguing that the blame for poor literacy in Detroit is education in Mississippi? That seems a bit of a stretch, even for you.

    Still awating an apology

  • im talking to boomer, if you cant understand dont make yourself look like a dullard. I will try to explain it to you. Sam is blaming liberals for the poor literacy in detroit, im saying he should be blameing conservatives for poor scores in the south. wow

  • Just looked at your stats there puppy. I realize this fact may have escaped you, but Detroit is a city, Mississippi is a state. Also noted, Mississippi as a state had a 78.5% graduation rate, the city of Detroit is at 47%. Big difference.

  • well gee chunky, I thought we were making generalziations. Sam did and I thought I would join in. Thanks for calling me out on it and not sam. Perhaps we should break it down my neighborhod and high school. Is sam talking about detroit proper or the outlying districts? Who is on the school board? what are their political leanings? What are the mayors of all of detroits outlying districts political leanings? What about the members of the city councils?

    are we including royal oak, ferndale, birmingham, troy, bloomfield, franklin, novi or just detroit that has less then 1 million people? there are a million more questions that need to be asked, not just "detroit schools suck and its the liberals fault"

    Lets say that one quarter of detroits population is school age so roughly 250,000 students, 47% dont graduate leaving us with a grand total of 120 thousand people who dont graduate.

    as for the link, yes chunky we know a good christian like you believes the end justifys the means and torture to humans is just fine. We are one step closer to being more like them and I know that makes you feel safe

  • Sam

    A quote from your article:

    And last but not least, we have a University of Wisconsin Liberal Professor caught encouraging his students to engage in voter fraud.

    Professor Stephen Richards (UW-Oshkosh) was schooling his students in the sacred art of Democrat voter fraud, but the nutty professor was not smart enough to make sure he wasn't caught on tape with his dishonesty.

    Professor Richards belongs in the funny papers. He was instructing his students to lie to get signatures for his leftist petition, and to go around and get signatures in "the bars." As if Liberals needed inebriation to follow along after Socialists.

    Along this same line of thinking we should probably include the GOP recall election fraud in Wisconsin to your "Funny Papers" list.

    A formal challenge to be filed later today against Republican recall petitions asks the Government Accountability Board to disqualify thousands of invalid signatures, and reject recall elections against three Democratic state senators, because widespread and systemic election fraud has tainted the entire GOP operation.

    Please forgive me if I appear dull, trying to muddle through the mass of spelling, grammar, and usage errors that are your statments can make any of us dull I think.

    However, are you trying to change your argument mid-thread again? So if Sam should be blaming conservatives for poor graduation rates in Mississippi, who should he blame for poor literacy in Detroit in your opinion? Who is to blame for poor graduation rates in California, the conservatives there as well? Are the vast Liberal hordes of Wyoming to credit for its high graduation rate?

    You just said the blame was misplaced, meaning someone other than Liberals in Detroit are to blame. On that point I agree. You didn't say Sam wasn't being fair or going far enough. You just made an argument that is as ridiculous as Sam's was, nice work!

    Furthermore, You and Chunky Peanut Butter apparently have some comprehension problems, the 47% is not graduation rate according to the story Sam posted, it is functional illiteracy. This looks to me like more of your semi-literacy, as Sir Didymus said, showing. Perhaps 47% is also the graduation rate, if it is please correct me and I'll apologize.

    You keep making arguments like these and you'll soon join your master on the "not as intelligent as he thinks" list.

    Still awaiting an apology

    I understand why you would feel "dumber for having" read my posts, especially since the last one detailed how stupid your comments were. If someone pointed out how stupid I was acting, I'd probably feel dumber for it too.

    I am starting to wonder if my jest that bigdawg is actually mike is true.... One more person that won't respond to you. Hmm... It could be that liberals can't debate, so they all act similar. I dunno, I have known a few lefties that actually have reasons for their beliefs. Of course, they probably aren't exactly proud libelers... er liberals.

  • So how does a Christian reconcile the killing of UBL? I know the punishment for killing is death, whether by man or God. I also know God, through the blood of Jesus Christ, is a forgiving God. I know that through our faith in Jesus, we receive grace from God. If there's any doubt, pray.

    I was not a Christian of the day of 9/11/2001. Far from it. I hoped for the ultimate destruction of the Middle East. I hoped for the annihilation of all that is Islam. As I became a believer, the war became less and less attractive. I hoped for a victory for our troops, and perhaps someday, we will see it.

    So yes, I am conflicted with the death of UBL. Should we have waited for God to kill him, or is this, his death by the hands of America, within His will? We won't know. It is over, UBL is dead, and now we must move forward.

    The truth these days is elusive. Here is a link that claims the new long form birth certificate is faked using Adobe Illustrator. Not being very computer literate, I don't know the truth. Run this by your computer tech friends. Let us know what they say. The link goes into great detail showing how the alleged faking was done.

    As a lover of the truth I would like to know.

    Follow up on the birth certificate. The changes to the document using Adobe Illustrator are so obvious and such a sloppy mess (verified by a more knowledgeable friend with the proper software), I am led to think this: the President and his advisors WANT the controversy to continue. Anyone who points out the flaws in the document will, of course, be branded as "nuts" or "racist". That will help to deflect attention from the economy, the destruction of our currency, and the national debt. The same is true of the Bin Laden shooting, and the bombing in Libya.

    They NEED us to focus on the unimportant.

  • but does the president and his advisors know that you know that they know you know? and if they know you know will they continue to pretend they dont know you know?

    I don't even know that I know what they want me to know, or what they don't want me to know.

    All that I know is that I know nothing--Socrates.
